iTrace App Review & iPad Mini Giveaway

730 Flares 730 Flares ×

This just in . . . kids LOVE everything electronic, especially games. That’s why we have to check out any opportunity to learn about an app for the iPad (both Kora and Logan’s favorite) that is both fun and educational. Elately has developed iTrace a new app made especially for the iPad (regular and mini) that will make learning how to write letters, numbers and word both fun and interesting for your children, while sneaking in that teaching factor.iTrace Letter AiTrace uses the iPad’s touch screen to teach children the basics of writing and spelling. iTrace shows you how to properly draw the letter or number, and then you repeat and follow example. This app has the ability to store information for multiple users and will save the history and progress for each user.

Simply by clicking on the History button you can see all the letters, numbers and words that your child has mastered, you can also see where there are opportunities for your child to improve. iTrace will tell you what mistakes have been made, such as “too shaky” or “out of bounds” so you can know what to work on.

iTrace History MistakesWhen using iTrace, you have the option to choose letters (upper or lower case), numbers, practice and words. After you successfully complete the chosen task three times, you are given an award which is normally an object that starts with the letter you drew, the next screen is an interactive page where you have to search around to find your newly earned object. This helps keep the experience fresh and fun.

Kora and Logan have mastered their individual letters, so their favorite part was “Words” where you get to write out . . . you guessed it, words!

You have the choices of “My Name,” “My Words,” or “My Scenes.” “My Scenes” was a hit in our house, you get to choose from multiple settings where words that match the setting are given for you to write. When you successfully spell the word, a picture of your writing comes up on the screen and takes its place in your setting.

iTrace NameiTrace BarniTrace BeachFor those of you with an iPad and a young child, this app is a must to check out, you will be happy with iTrace’s ability to simplify the learning process for your child. iTrace can be downloaded at the App Store for $3.99, check it out!

    My favorite feature of iTrace is that it uses the “old fashioned” method of tracing to learn handwriting, but with an updated, interactive & fun twist.

  281. Teaching kids to form their letters. What’s not to like? The History/feedback option is great. Hand it back and review the work to help the tikes out.

  282. Cindy Munkelt says:

    I like that it saves a history and progress for each person. This would also be good for someone who doesn’t write in English to help them learn.

  283. I like that you can save the history and progress for multiple users.

  284. Both kids and adults can enjoy it!

  294. Mendy Dinsmore says:

    It’s similar to what we had when I was in elementary school. The work sheets had the letters made in dashes and we traced over them. It is a great app.

  295. I like that it has the name feature…so we can practice writing names with the proper capitalization of only the first letter.

  296. ryan minton says:

    i use apps like this at work for students..this one looks like a great app…i like how it shows the students where to make the next line of the letter in order.

  327. What a great App! Makes learning fun!

  328. cathy henatyszen says:

    A really great app for kids to learn to write, something schools are actually dropping from their courses now a days

  329. I’ve made tracing papers for my kids (write the letter backwards in marker on the backside, then flip it over and they trace it on the front side), but this would be so much easier to have it always digitally ready to go! Plus, they love getting to play on the “big kid toys.” I also like that it keeps track of progress – build self-esteem and reinforces value of patience and working hard at something to see their progress like that! I’m excited to try the app out. :)

  330. The feature where my nephew can learn how to properly write lower case d’s. His teacher has been on him for the longest on how to make his d’s. I think the iTrace app may just be the tool to get him to finally learn!

  331. The history button is pretty cool

  332. I like the history function of the app

  333. kfloveinme says:

  340. I like the history button.

  341. My 3 little ones would totally have a blast with this!

  342. Tammy Shelton says:

    The History Button is a great idea, so we can see how far our kiddo has come along.

  343. I love that the letters are big and can be traced by a little finger this is great

  344. I like the History button so you can see how far your child has progressed!

  345. Jamie Brigham says:

    I love that kids can use multiple different colors, My son doesn’t like using one colors only.

  346. Adrienne gordon says:

    I like it can help kids with poor fine motor skills

  358. I have an iPad & love it!! If I were to win the mini, I’d probably give it to my hubby. ;)

  359. It’s really good, Thank you for this giveaway. I’d like to give it as a gift to my niece and nephew, They are studying English as a second language

  360. learning letters!

  361. sandra davis says:

    i like after you complete a task it gives the kids an award

  362. Would love to win this.

  363. My 4 year old would LOVE this app and it would really improve his letter making (since it is fun!) :) It is no fun when I tell him to stay on the line- but this app would make it more enjoyable to do his “hard work” as he calls it.

  364. I think it’s great that a user is given an award for accomplishing certain tasks. That really helps reinforce what’s been learned, and encourages kids to keep trying.

    Thanks!

  373. Christina Kelbel says:

  374. jennifer lane says:

    I like that it tells exactly what the issues are with what the child traced

  375. I like that it corrects you if you’re “too shaky”.

  392. Maria Malaveci says:

    Wow! The choice of having upper and lower case letters!

    mmalavec(at)med(dot)umich(dot)edu

  408. love the fact that can trace uppercase, lowercase and numbers.. great feature

  409. Looks like it is a great learning tool for young children.

  410. “My Words” looks like a great feature! I’m curious, can you put in your own list of words? This would be great for my 1st grader who has specific words to practice.

  411. Kelly Colucci says:

    I like that I can customize the letters so my daughters can work on the letters that are harder for them as we go along.
